Curried Cashews and Chickpeas with Almond Asparagus

Yesterday we were out almost the whole day which meant we had fast food for breakfast and lunch. By the time dinner came we felt so gross after eating all the crap that we decided to cook on the lighter side. These recipes are actually side dishes but since we are trying to eat smaller…

Mediterranean Pizza – ★★★★★

This was an “on the fly” recipe because we found ourselves at the grocery store short a dinner recipe. That is what is so cool about having this blog because I was able to look it up on my phone and throw something quick and delicious together. I used my “go to crust recipe” and…

Island Sliders With a Kick – ★★★★★

These babies were just the thing to polish off the beautiful summer day today. The pineapples and chicken burger patties were juicy, flavorful, and grilled to perfection. The only thing I might add is a tsp of teriyaki sauce. All together these hit the spot and Perry deemed them worth 5 stars. Here is why: “Kelsey…

Blueberry Lemon Droplet Scones with Lemon Glaze – ★★★★★

Coconut Chicken with Tropical Salsa – ★★★★★

I’ve been  getting into baking chicken as opposed to pan frying lately. I swear I will never EVER properly cook chicken in a pan. It is always dry and gross when I do so I’m throwing in the towel and sticking to my oven. Between this recipe, the rosemary walnut recipe, and the Moroccan chicken…

Moroccan Chicken with Lemon and Olives – ★★★★✩

This dish, also known in Morocco as Tajine Msir Zeetoon, is not your typical “usually-dry-baked-chicken.” This recipe results in extremely moist cutlets bursting with flavor. I could eat the olives and lemon for days. This was my first ever Moroccan recipe and I’m pretty excited to try more. This dish is so easy to make…
